Portland, OR - Physical Genius USA brings a virtual reality and sports camp to kids, aged 9-13, focused on helping kids learn a range of athletic skills, aiming to fight health problems arising from inactivity. The camp provides a dynamic environment, using virtual reality and award-winning accelerated learning products, experienced through a culture, which treats every member with value – not just catering to the ‘best’ kids.
Youth sports participation has declined 2% per year, every year, for the last ten years. Due primarily to inactivity, the current generation of kids is predicted, for the first time in history, to live shorter lives than their parents.
Physical Genius USA, led locally by coach and gym owner, Tony Magden and his wife, CPA and startup adviser, Lisa Lund, is on a mission to bring healthy, athletic habits back to kids’ daily lives.
"Our passion is to help kids get excited about being active, so they can grow into active, healthy adults. Much of that comes through knowing how to do a variety of sports well enough to enjoy them without embarrassment." - Tony Magden
Portland is one of three Physical Genius USA sites starting around the country this summer.
The initial 5-day camp experience begins 4pm-6:30, July 9th at Montclair Elementary School. The camp continues the rest of the week, running 4:30-6:30. Camps continue at varying locations through the remainder of the summer in the Portland Metro Area.
